Google Starts Killing Google Play Music Everywhere, Including on Android Auto

An increasing number of users are now seeing that Google Play Music is no longer available in the Play Store.

More specifically, some of those who are trying to launch Google Play Music today are no longer able to do so, as the application fails with a generic error that informs the service has been retired. Google suggested on a support page that your end date might be tied to your billing date, so if you have a billing date coming up, be anxious.

In typical Google fashion, some still have access to Google Play Music, while a majority of others are completely locked out. That said, the end is coming.

The Music Store is no longer available on Google Play, but where has it gone?

The search giant's recommended service for Google Play Music is YouTube Music, no matter if they previously used the app on a mobile phone or in the vehicle. Google has remained tight-lipped on this phased retirement of Play Music, but the company did announce that the app is supposed to go dark by the end of the year. We've had time and Google honestly put together a very solid method of moving music libraries from GPM to YTM and extended the free upload music library to 100,000 songs on the new service, so all-in-all they made the path to moving pretty simple. YouTube is owned by Google, so the new app is essentially a new, updated and rebranded version of Google Play Music.
